PLEASE JOIN OR REJOIN THE SPACE UNICORN RANGER CORPS AND BRING MORE ART AND KINDNESS INTO THE UNIVERSE!
Three-time Hugo Award-winner Lynne M. Thomas and four-time Hugo Award nominee Michael Damian Thomas are launching a Kickstarter for Year Three of their 2016 Hugo and World Fantasy Award-nominated professional online SF/F magazine: Uncanny Magazine. Each issue contains new and classic speculative fiction, fiction podcasts, poetry, essays, art, and interviews. Uncanny Magazine is raising funds via Kickstarter to cover some of its operation and production costs for the third year, with an initial goal of $18,700. The Kickstarter will launch July 18, 2016, and run through August 16, 2016.
Uncanny features passionate SF/F fiction and poetry, gorgeous prose, and provocative nonfiction, with a deep investment in our diverse SF/F culture. We publish intricate, experimental stories and poems with verve and vision, from writers from every conceivable background. With the hard work of the best staff and contributors in the world, Uncanny Magazine delivered everything as promised with our Year One and Two Kickstarters.
So far, pieces from Uncanny Magazine Year One are finalists for 14 different awards and have been included in 6 separate Year's Best anthologies. This year, the magazine has been recognized as a World Fantasy Award Finalist and Hugo Award Finalist. Hao Jingfang’s Uncanny Magazine story “Folding Beijing” (translated by Ken Liu) became a finalist for the Hugo, Sturgeon, and Locus Awards. Amal El-Mohtar's "Pockets" and Sam J. Miller's "The Heat of Us: Notes Toward an Oral History" are both World Fantasy Award finalists. We couldn't have done all of this without the amazing support of our Kickstarter community, who we call the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps after our logo mascot. This is also their magazine, which is why we’re running the Uncanny Magazine Year Three Kickstarter.
For Year Three, Uncanny has solicited original short fiction from Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy Award-winning and nominated authors including: Seanan McGuire (October Daye series), Ursula Vernon (Digger), Alyssa Wong (“Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers”), Maria Dahvana Headley (Magonia), Mary Robinette Kowal (Glamourist Histories series), Catherynne M. Valente (Radiance), John Chu ("The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere"), Paul Cornell (Who Killed Sherlock Holmes ?), N. K. Jemisin (The Fifth Season), Sam J. Miller ("The Heat of Us: Notes Toward an Oral History"), Isabel Yap ("The Oiran's Song"), Delia Sherman (The Freedom Maze), Sarah Pinsker ("Our Lady of the Open Road"), and Nalo Hopkinson (The New Moon's Arms). There will also be numerous slots for unsolicited submissions.
Uncanny Magazine Year Three plans to showcase original essays by Sophie Aldred, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Sarah Kuhn, Mark Oshiro, David J. Schwartz, and Cecilia Tan, plus poetry by Lisa M. Bradley, Roshani Chokshi, Theodora Goss, Nin Harris, Shveta Thakrar, and Jo Walton.
Uncanny Magazine Year Three will also feature cover art by Julie Dillon and Galen Dara, and interior art for Alyssa Wong's story by Grace P. Fong.
